Experts contradict each other in Cadman-Harper controversy
former FBI scientist hired by Stephen Harper's lawyer in the prime minister's $3.5-million lawsuit against the Liberal party has contradicted two other experts who said an audio tape at the centre of the legal action was doctored, court documents reveal.
Former FBI special agent Bruce Koenig – who lists expert evidence about former U.S. president Richard Nixon's Watergate tapes and analysis of gun shots in the assassination of John F. Kennedy among his accomplishments – said more evidence is needed to judge the veracity and integrity of the disputed tape recording.
concluded Zytaruk's original recording, his tape recorder and an external microphone if Zytaruk used one "are required to conduct a conclusive authenticity examination in a forensic audio laboratory."
That kind of examination is required to "scientifically" determine whether the original information is truly original, contains or has alterations, such as deletions or additions, Koenig said in the report he submitted with his own sworn affidavit.
So, this other "expert", with big credentials say you can't conclude anything with the current evidence, more is required for judgement. Why didn't Moore use this "expert" at his big presser, that "proved" the tape was a fake?
This conclusion is quite different from:
One of the initial two experts, the head of Owl Investigations Inc. in Colonia, N.J., said he concluded "with scientific certainty that this tape has been edited and doctored to misrepresent the event as it actually occurred."
Scientific certainty? And yet, Koenig, the man with the biggest pedigree, says you can't make scientific determinations based on what we know.
This conflict amongst Harper's "experts" highlights the disingenious presentation, made to Canadians, when they had full knowledge that there was no unanimious opinion, even with those PAID by the Conservatives. The two that were supportive are trumpeted, the other basically ignored, only coming to light through the court documents, only cited, because now the tactic has changed.
Gee, I wonder what the Liberal "experts" will say? Calling James Moore...
